Due to snow and cold, attendance was down in my classroom, today. Out of 22 students, 14 were in attendance. At the end of the day, I had students draw a picture of their favorite Christmas gift and write a sentence or two about it. Two children drew pictures of cell phones. I was in shock. These little guys are 6 or 7 years old. Is it just me or is this a bit much? They were very excited about their gift!
